1961 Mercury Comet

1961 Mercury Comet 4 Door Station Wagon.
The title list this as a 1961 Ford Comet. I'm not sure why.
The man I bought this from had started a few updates,starting with what he said was a 302 V-8 and a automatic transmission.He also changed the rear end out with a 1964 ford falcon 5 lug.I'm not sure what size transmission is has. When I bought this from him, he put a battery on it and the motor turned over but did not start. He said he could work on it some more, but the price would be higher, so I bought as is.He patched the floors with metal and pop rivets and fixed a little rust around the bottom with bondo.I had plans to put satin clear on it and drive it the way it was, but I have another project that I need to finish.This will also need some shocks, drive shaft, brakes, exhaust and the rear springs were longer than the old ones, so all the bolt holes did not line up. There will need to be some brackets made to mount part of the spring assembly.This will also need some kind of shifter for the transmission, he had a empty shifter box laying in it that he put in another project he was working on.There are some extra parts laying in it, that will go with it.The windshield is turning white around the edges, maybe 1/2 inch in places, not to bad that you would have to replace.There are no cracks in any of the windows. The body has small dents, dings, scuffs, scratches and surface rust.Most of the side chrome is in real good shape, but as always some do have some dents, dings, scuffs and scratches.I don't have the key to the rear door, so I can't tell if there is any problem with it.The rear floor has a lot of rust in it. Both back quarter window weatherstrips have cracks in them were water can leak in.
